The NYR may have the best young defense corp in the NHL with Staal, McDonough, Erixon, Girardi and Sauer. The last serious hole to be filled is with an offensive defensemen who can improve the PP. The only remaining FA left to fill this void would be Kaberle and Babchuk and to a lesser extent Anton Stralman. Who do you think the NYR are considering and who makes sense? If none of these options are moved on quickly do they look at the trade front with RFA like Doughty (too expensive), Weber, Yandle or Alzner or elsewhere?
My hope is Babchuk who would be reasonable at between 2.5-3 mil per but doesnt play the physical game that Tortarella demands.
